Several photographers have captured the excitement surrounding a newborn baby in an incredibly unique (and appropriate) fashion. After his son Claudio was born, Swiss photographer Alessandro Della Bella (http://dellabella.ch/) shot an adorable portrait of the newborn sleeping in his camera bag’s main compartment. He then used this photo to let loved ones know that a new member was welcomed into the family. After eight months had passed, Bella then decided to update his portfolio by adding another charming shot of Claudio, who has grown quite a bit since that first snapshot was taken!

Photographers such as Tom Pennington(http://tompenningtonphoto.com/), Drake Busch(http://drakebusch.com/), and Ning Wong(http://www.ningwong.com/) have captured similar images that are just as artistically delightful. To switch things up a bit, Busch decided to give his camera bag baby a photographer’s press access pass, which definitely adds another layer of cuteness. And when it comes time to put together a family photo album, these images will undoubtedly serve as the perfect addition.

Tips For A Better LinkedIn Profile Picture

Clothing Tips

  • Try and keep colors from getting too close to your natural skin tone! That’s our biggest tip for you.
  • Avoid clothes that may take you back to the 70s’: i.e. wild checks, stripes, and very busy patterns; especially if worn together!
  • Avoid clothing extremes. Generally, turtlenecks and V-necks are good, as long as they don’t over-power the face. Dress to feel comfortable.
  • RELAX!! If you are feeling frazzled, it will come across in the portraits.
  • Opt for long-sleeve shirts rather than short-sleeve.

The color of the clothes:

  • Avoid bright reds and orange (they battle your face for attention)
  • Darker colors are generally better than light colors.
  • Colors like white, yellow, and pink tend to over-power the face and can make you look too pale.
  • In general, the best colors are medium shades of blue, green, burgundy, and rust.

When doing a studio shoot, come to the studio in sweats or street clothes when or if possible. It’s ok if you aren’t able to; but if you will be wearing multiple outfits, you can change here to keep them looking fresh.
These are just guidelines though, you should definitely show your personal style in your portraits and throw caution to the wind if it suits your personality.

Makeup Tips

  • Not too heavy, not too light. If you “never wear makeup” you might want to at least use some for your photo session.
  • Accent the eyes using mascara and eyeliner
  • Eye shadow should be used sparingly.
  • A light foundation or base gives the complexion an even tone.
  • Use powder to eliminate shine.
  • A blusher gives the skin a healthy glow.
  • Coordinate lipstick with the outfit worn.
  • If dark circles are present under the eyes, use an erase that is close to the skin tone.

Shaving & Hair Tips

  • Get a good shave if you have a heavy beard.
  • Don’t get a new hair cut just before the shoot. Give it a week. Consider having it styled for the shoot, but skip the cut. If you really want a cut, just don’t go radical.
  • If you get your eyebrows waxed or threaded, please do so at least 2-3 days prior to your headshot shoot.
  • A change in your hairstyle is not recommended. Arrange your hair normally and as you want it to appear in the portrait. Freshly shampooed hair photographs best.
  • No glitter make-up or sparkles in your hair.

More Tips

  • Increased water consumption will help clear your skin and give it a healthy glow. It will also make you look younger and fresher.
  • Reducing consumption of coffee, teas and sodas will give your teeth a break from stains and discoloration too!
  • If at all possible, avoid alcohol for a day or two before your shoot. It dehydrates the skin.
  • Try to get a good night’s rest before the day of your shoot.
